Rumor has it I’m a tyrant.
The head of the Russian mob you don’t want to cross.
After all, I killed my wife when she betrayed me.
Then I buried her in the same grave as her lover, my best friend.
Rumor has it I stole their love child.
The little boy that, for the first two years of his life, I thought was mine.
They say I locked him up on a deserted estate where he’s gone mad talking to imaginary friends.
Rumor has it the boy is mine now.
That I let him roam my mansion completely naked.
And he has a life sentence for paying for his mother’s crimes in my bed.
Rumor has it I’m obsessed with this little ray of sunshine in my dark world.
And anyone who tries to hurt him will soon take their last breath.
Still, you shouldn’t listen to rumors. They're not always true. Sometimes.
I’ve lived a ruthless life full of resentment.
There’s nothing and no one I loathe more than Chief Ben Witter.
I'm the president of the Blood Hounds MC, and Witter has always been a thorn in my side.
He can’t be bought.
And he’s on a mission to dismantle my club.
But my obsession with hurting him has nothing to do with club business.
It’s personal. Deeply personal.
I want to annihilate him for making the man I‘ve always loved, fall for him instead. A dead man whose ghost lingers between us. When Witter needs help to close a dangerous case involving my club, I volunteer. Being around him is the best way to ruin him. Except our mutual hatred makes for explosive heat. The more we fight, the more we wind up beneath the sheets... the bed of his truck... and in a dark alley. Chief Witter is an addictive man. How am I supposed to still carry a grudge when I've fallen for him like our ex did?
This is Ben's and Gunner's book. It is best read after Biker Daddy and Bay.
